(SportsNetwork.com) - According to multiple reports, the Indiana Pacers have acquired swingman Evan Turner from the Philadelphia 76ers.

Turner heads to the Eastern Conference-leading Pacers along with forward Lavoy Allen in exchange for former all-star Danny Granger and a 2015 second-round draft pick.

Turner, the No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft, has averaged 17.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists this season. He will be a restricted free agent this summer.

Allen has made 54 starts in 171 career games, all with Philly, after getting drafted 50th overall out of Temple in 2011. He holds career averages of 5.2 points and 4.9 boards per contest.

To make room on the roster, Indiana will release guard Orlando Johnson.

Granger, 30, has spent his entire nine-year career with Indiana, averaging 17.6 points and earning an all-star birth in 2009.

The Sixers host Indiana on Friday, March 14.
